Pros: the front desk staff
Cons: The food
Location: So central, everything is within walking distance!!!
If you are looking for location, it is superb. However, the noise from some nightclub close by is unbearable,,specially on lower floors. Additionally, the free dinner leaves much to be desired. However, when it comes to the assistance of the desk help, both, Maria and Carsten (hope spelling is correct) were beyond amazing. Full of support, friendliness and made us feel like long lost friends and not just paying guests.

Perfect Location and Terrific Food!

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: * Complimentary and delicious breakfast and dinner buffets * Location--close to subway/train station, shops, museums, harbor
Cons: The hotel is in need of some refurbishment in addition to air conditioning. Also, there is not much programming available on the TV.
Location: The hotel is across from a park, one block from Karl Johan's Gate, and a short walk to the harbor, shops, museums, and the subway/train system.
We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Cristiana Teater very much. When we first booked, they were owned by another company, and our reservations included only a complimentary breakfast buffet. However, when they became affiliated with Clarion, a complimentary dinner was added, and this became a delicious and valuable bonus! It almost made up for the fact that there is no air conditioning in the hotel, and during our stay, Oslo experienced some of its warmest weather. The location is also a plus: the subway, train, and airport express station is about a 3-minute walk from the hotel, as are many shops, the harbor, museums, other sights, and Karl Johan's Gate, which is the main street.

Excellent location in downtown close to everything

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Location, proximity to city center, monuments restaurants everything.
Cons: The lobby is plain as compared to other hotels. They should decorate it a bit to give a nice first impression
Location: Downtown location. Its next door to the Palace, National Theatre, Noble Academy
At first it looks very plain. It is an old hotel very centrally located. Accessible by direct train from the Airport. Just get off at the National Theater 3rd stop. Rooms are large and have been well decorated. Has a wooden floor which is great. This was the only hotel we stayed in Norway where we had a single queen comforter other wise all hotels had two singles. Well we like to cuddle so it worked for us. Bathrooms are spacious clean and comfortable. Like the idea of glass between the bathroom and the bedroom...once again thoughtfully creative. Great for couples We enjoyed very much.

Nice hotel with great breakfast included.

Problem finding the hotel, partly because the name had changed. Location is good and the price was very reasonable.

Fantastic Location and Huge Room

Posted May 16, 2014 on Hotels.com
The room was absolutely massive by European standards. Huge, high ceilings, a very comfortable bed and massive flat screen tv. The bathroom was an odd configuration but very lovely regardless. It had a great coffee/tea machine as well which is uncommon in many hotels. The breakfast was fantastic and had something for everyone.
